Never Enough Wool
Do you hear those
calendar pages flipping by? How in the
world are they managing to go so quickly?
We can’t believe that it’s time to write the August newsletter. Where in the world did July go?
Our needles have been
busy at the store, working up samples and plans for the upcoming year. For starters, we’d like to introduce Sublime
Merino Lace. Eight luscious
colours, and the yarn is very nice as well.
Carol knit up a little shawl from three balls of wool, with a bit left,
and loves the shawl. Such warmth, in a
little fluffy shawl. Perfect for those
cool fall evenings. There is a pattern
book as well, with even more intricate ideas.
Our Knitting Wonders
board continues to climb. As of July
29, our total is 1321. We have a month
left – how high can we go?
Carol’s grandson will
be celebrating his first birthday with an Open House at the Prince Albert
Community Hall on Sunday, August 17, from 2:00 until 4:00. Come meet the apple of Carol’s eye as well
as his parents, Jason and Coris. Light
refreshments will be served, and an RSVP will help insure that we don’t run
Don’t forget The
Knitters’ Fair to be held in Kitchener/Waterloo at The Aud on September
13. We are not hiring a bus this year,
but Barb and Carol are planning to attend and scope out the admissions issue in

an opportunity for some carpooling, so be sure to leave your information if you

Entrelac Scarf – August –
Interested in learning this very interesting technique? We have an easy scarf project that will get
you well on your way. Using 400m of
wool (Allegria or Painted Desert, or Monsoon, Kureyon or Chirimen),
this little scarf would be a great start on your holiday knitting. Class meets Tuesdays, from 1-3:00 pm or
7-9:00 pm beginning August 5 and continuing through the month of August. Cost is $20 plus materials.
Crochet Baby/Adult Hat
-- September – For that special someone in your life (or yourself!), we have a
cute little hat planned. Class will
meet on Thursday mornings, beginning September 4, from 10-12:00, at a cost of
$20 plus materials.
Japanese Upside Down Knitted Poncho – September – Remember when Barb’s husband brought home a pattern book
from Japan? Barb is decoding the
directions for an adorable lace poncho – but it’s not your 1960’s poncho. Brought into the modern era and knit in DK
weight yarn, this little beauty will be an excellent layering piece for three
seasons of the year! Cost is $20, plus

holidays on the specified weekend.

Entrelac Jacket – One of our customers brought in the book Entrelac by Rosemary Drysdale,
and we spotted the beautiful Edwardian
Cardigan on page 104. Carol and
Barb are still working on their cardigans, and welcome anyone else who wants to
play along. It’s never too late for
Building Blocks – Michelle Hunter has created an afghan
comprised of knitted squares, each designed to build your skills with needles,
stitching, and assembly. We are nearing
the end of this class session – our final meeting is Sunday, August 24, wherein
we will discuss assembling, blocking, and partying! Class is currently filled – leave your name if you are
interested and we will schedule a second series of classes.
Building in Color – Michelle Hunter has done it again! An afghan worked in multi-coloured
techniques to expand your knitting horizons.
We are planning this class to begin in January, after the frenetic
activity of the holidays, and to be meeting on a weekday morning. Please let us know if you are interested!
Stitch: Every Wednesday afternoon,
from 1 until
3. Bring your
latest project and join
us for some stitching, questions answered, tea, and lots of laughter. Everyone is welcome!
Stitching: Every Saturday, from 2
until 4. What
better way to spend a Saturday
afternoon than with friends both new and old, some handwork, and some
Night: Every Thursday, from 7
until 9. Although

crocheters are encouraged and welcomed.
There is plenty of friendship, tea, and yummy
goodies for all.
